Descrizione

494 pages. Apparently rebound in black half-leather and blue/gold marbled boards and endpapers. Index. "In 1899 a treaty with the Indians of the great Mackenzie basin followed the report of a Senate select Committee, chaired by Sir John Schultz; but, owing to the absence of roads and markets, and other essentials of civilized life, not to speak of the vast unsettled areas of prairie to the south, the incoming, until now that the railways are projected, of any great body of immigrants was very wisely discouraged, and this in the interest of the settler himself. The following narrative, therefore, has lain in the author's diary since the year of the expedition it records." - Preface. Numerous black and white photographic plates including tissue-protected frontis. Attractive colour fold-out map dated 1900 depicts the areas encompassed by Treaty No. 8 and the Indian tribes therein. Top edge gilt. Contents clean and unmarked. Tight and square with moderate external wear. Wallace p.54, Lande 1332, Peel [3] 2463. Book
